Winter Wonderland with Dana

Hi Quick Quotes fans! Dana here today sharing a winter canvas. I used the NEW Metal Embellishments as the focal point of this piece.

I started with a 5x7 Blank Canvas Panel. I colored the background with Blue Jeans, Caribbean Blue, Coconut White and Feather Gray PowderPuff Chalking Ink. I rubbed Creamy Cocoa PowderPuff Chalking Ink around the edge of the canvas. I then added the snowflake pattern to the canvas using a stencil and Martha Stewart Sparkle Texture Effect.

I glued two Metal Embellishments together onto the center of the canvas and then topped it with some festive embellishments. I went over the embellishment cluster with a light coat of gesso. I finished the canvas with some metal trim and ribbon from a past Club Q Kit.

Naughty or Nice with Susie

Hello!  Susie here today with a Christmas themed layout featuring papers from several Quick Quotes collections!  I mixed together some reds and teals to scrap this photo of my daughter and her visit with Santa!

The background is from the Alton Collection.  The red layer is from Cracklin' Rose.  The blue and white layer with the decorative edge is actually from the June Club Q Page Layouts which featured papers from Baggage Claim. The strip is from Sheer Joy.  The wooden Christmas tree is from my stash!
The word strip across the bottom is also from the same sheet of Sheer Joy.  I added a chipboard word, rhinestone flourish and a snowflake button from my stash.

This sentiment card is from the Quick Quotes Holiday Bundle.

In the upper right I added another rhinestone flourish, a flower and more wood veneers.  There is also a lace doily die cut peeking out from behind the photo.

December Club Q with Donna!

Hello everyone, Donna Coughlin here with a project I did using Quick Quotes Club Q December kits. I love getting the kits. The first thing I do is take everything out of the wrappers and check out all the goodies in the kits. Then I start creating whatever comes to mind.

This first thing I did was make this layout using a Christmas card I received last year in the mail. The frame from the kit fit the card perfectly so there was no trimming at all! The flowers from the kit I also mixed to create different types of flowers. I love using gold with Christmas layouts so I used Gold rub on the "Moments" chipboard.


I also added some gold Radiant Rain to to the chipboard which I covered with "Green with Envy" Powderpuff ink, which by the way is a perfect color for Christmas projects! Some of the chipboard I dabbed with the green ink as well.

Products Used:
Inka Gold Metallic Rub
Radiant Rain Solar Gold
K&Co Christmas tag
Have a happy holiday everyone!

The Magic of Christmas with Barb

Hello everyone and happy Friday to you! Barb here to host the blog today! Can you believe that we are less than 2 weeks from Christmas?! I was recently going through some of my old Christmas photos and came across this one….

I have made several Christmas layouts in my adventure of being a scrapbooker and looking back at them, most were made with red and green. I thought it would be fun to mix it up a bit and use some non-traditional colors! The Antique Garden 300 paper was perfect for my background!

Quick Quotes is know for their quotes and the Quote Cards are some of my favorite to work with! They always have the perfect quote for every occasion. This quote is from the Sentiments Quote Cards. I added some gold mist that I brushed onto the background to add some sparkle and then used PowderPuff Chalking Inks in Plum Crazy and Purple Passion around the edges!

I love when I can mix up the lines from Quick Quotes and this time I added in some Dusty Road Papers. The tab and word strip on the top of the paper are fussy cut from one of the Dusty Road papers.

Quick Quotes Products Used: 
Patterned Paper: Antique Garden 300
Patterned Paper: Dusty Road Paper Pack
PowderPuff Chalking Ink: Mocha Mama, Biscotti, Khaki, Plum Crazy, Purple Passion
Quote Cards: Sentiments

Non Traditional Holiday Colors with Jen

Hi everyone, Jen here today to host the blog for you. 

I am sharing a Christmas themed layout that does not contain the traditional Christmas colors! I created this layout using papers from the Dream Big paper line which is a mixture of pretty blues and yellows. I like how the yellow in the photo matches the layout, but the rest of the colors really make the photo pop!

I inked the edges of my papers with Java PowderPuff Chalking Ink. For the title, I layered a vellum Quote onto the plaid paper and placed the strip through a white frame. I then added details around the yellow flourishes with gold dots of paint.

Quick Quotes Items Used:

Christmas Cutie with Dana

Hi Quick Quotes fans! Dana here today sharing a layout that I created with my favorite piece of patterned paper from the NEW Antique Garden collection.

My Sister-In-Law took this beautiful photo of my daughter all bundled up for a walk through town.

The temperature is dropping and I wanted to add a frosty feel to this page. I added this snowflake pattern to the background of my page using a stencil and Coconut White PowderPuff Chalking Ink.

I covered a wood snowflake with the Treasure Chest 100 patterned paper for a fun large embellishment to help balance my large photo. I inked the edge of the snowflake with Coconut PowderPuff Chalking Ink.

I cut the word "Christmas" from a larger Vellum Quote Strip for my title.

The Best of Times with Rhonda

Greetings and welcome to the blog, it's Rhonda here today to share a project.

This project was created using pieces from our November Club Q kit and some silly fun pictures that are not exactly "flattering"… but definitely silly and fun. The papers in the kit are from our new Antique Garden collection.

You and Me Life Is A Joy Ride by Rhonda Van Ginkel for Quick Quotes featuring November Club Q

To start, I used one of the wave die cut papers from the kit, then cut the stripes from the Antique Garden 400 paper, rounded the tops and layered them to create a vertical design.  This helped break up the floral design and added the perfect amount of balance to the page.

I added the "Life is a Joy Ride" cutout from the Calypso 500 paper.  The "These are the best of times" color vellum quote is included in the kit.

You and Me Life Is A Joy Ride by Rhonda Van Ginkel for Quick Quotes featuring November Club Q

The flowers in the lower left are cut from the Antique Garden 200 paper. The pearl brad is included in the kit. I stamped the date of the photo using our Coconut White PowderPuff Chalk Ink.  I love the contrast and how nicely it works for stamping!

A few extra little touches of flair and enamel dots brought the page together.

Quick Quotes Products Used:
November Club Q Kit
Calypso 500 - Words and Phrases
PowderPuff Chalk Inks:  Coconut, Midnight Confessions, Lemonade, Coal Miner

Other Products Used:
Flair: Studio Calico, LilyBee
Enamel Dots: MME

Tag Inspiration with Susie

Susie here today to share a Mixed Media Tag featuring some of the newly released papers from Quick Quotes.  I have always love playing with paper dolls, so I find the Julie Nutting Mixed Media Dolls pretty irresistible!

I started by stamping the doll image onto various papers from the *new* Alton collection.  I wasn't sure what I wanted until I saw it!  I trimmed out the dress and jacket combo I liked and adhered them to a base figure that I had stamped onto a piece of Dusty Road 400.

I used the Java PowderPuff Chalking Ink to color her hair.  I pressed the ink pad onto a craft mat and spritzed it with water, then used a paintbrush to add the color.

I found the sentiment about success on one of the Sentiment Quote Cards.  I cut "Success" into individual letters and the rest of the quote into strips.

I inked the edges with more of the Java PowderPuff Chalking Ink.

I framed this portion of the sentiment with rhinestone bling and added a flower at the bottom.

The background of the tag was made with a gray paper from the *new* Antique Garden and a yellow piece from the Dream Big Collection.

Quick Quotes Products:
Dream Big paper
Other Products:  Want2Scrap Nestabling, Recollections Flower
